+# Problems not clearly attributed
+In theory ` start` should start everything.  In practice, the
+first ` start` invocation does start the daemon but then fails
+to exit, hanging the startup process.  While there is an attempt to

+start script, and thus to write a script to do so, to enable reliable
+starting.  This is likely an upstream issue, to be debugged after
